ANGELS! Are you ready to rate?! 89 Tracks of pop brilliance await! Welcome to Charli XCX World, a Charli XCX discography rate. It will be within the walls of this thread that we finally take the time to sit down with our dear Charles and partake in the many pop worlds she has created with her music and visuals, and rate them accordingly. After many of the rates in which Charli was featured in the last year, I personally felt that maybe she could stand for some extra attention from the folks here on PJ, with so many amazing ladies releasing strong albums that resonated with people, Charli had a tough time winning people over with her particular brand of POP. ...Perhaps she was just too ahead of her time? Thus, I would be amiss if I didn’t honor the party chanteuse by opening this very rate thread.............. later than my advertising intended! March 5th whoms't? God bless this eternally late and relatable queen. For this discography rate, I will attempt to immerse you in Charli’s world, visually and musically. She’s been an important part of the tapestry of my personal taste since the very beginning, and I still believe there are only great things in store for us as she continues to blow pop music UP. One thing that I adore about Charli XCX are the emotional yet pop-centric soundscapes she creates with her albums, each era serving us a specific set of visuals, live performances and promo activities that highlight the world she has created for her fans for that body of work. With this rate I'd love to follow a similar path, and celebrate all that. BODY OF MY OWN | WHAT WE ARE RATING: We will be rating all of Charli’s mixtapes, EPs and studio albums as I deem them to be appropriate for her evolution as an artist, with the exception of Heartbreaks and Earthquakes which is a bit redundant with some and is also a megamix, which makes things harder to rate. THE EXTRAS | I LOVE IT: For this section, I decided to honor Charli’s immense presence in collaborations and slotted in a few one off singles for good measure. Seriously, if you didn’t realize, she has a ton of collaborations. It's one of the most fascinating pieces of Charli, in my opinion. My criteria for including these songs was that I felt Charli had an undeniable presence in the song, thus almost making it her own. That, or she had a huge hand in creating and conceptualizing/producing the song. I am open to suggestions! Due to the great volume of music she has, I have thought long and hard about these additions and find them to be a pretty good representation of her legacy. The essence of Charli herself exists in her frequent collaboration, so you will see a lot of that in this rate. CHARLI XCX WORLD SUPER BONUS | A TWIST: For a special bonus content section for my rate, and keeping in line with the artist in question, I’ve decided to honor the many leaks Charli has had over the last year. @Number’s original idea for this rate before he had to hand it off was to include a lot of the leaked material for the upcoming 3rd studio album, and I wanted to honor that in some (legally appropriate) way. I mean, Charlileaks is literally so her and one of the most messy moments in recent music history, I mean come on. So, knowing that, I have selected a small amount of the more high quality leaks that have surfaced as well as some fan favorites and standouts and created a makeshift album for those who have or have acquired the tracks, as well as the two officially released singles and created an OPTIONAL section for you guys to rate. I will slot the scores for these songs into the main list of songs through a special numbering strategy ( 12.a , 12.b ect) and give you some sassy exposition highlighting your thoughts and mine on the tracks so you can see where her hypothetical new material stacks up against her discography, but they will not be officially counted for the main portion of the rate. I am not going to provide these too you, so we will judge how many decide to fill out these scores and go forward appropriately. I will try to make this special and fun, elimination styles will look slightly different. LASTLY: I WILL REQUIRE YOU TO RATE THE TWO OFFICIALLY RELEASED SINGLES IN THIS SECTION. THIS IS NOT OPTIONAL, THEY WILL BE RATED OFFICIALLY. BREAK THE RULES | JUST KIDDING DON’T DO THAT: 1. Score every song provided between 0 and 10. Half point decimals are allowed. 2. You are allowed one 11 for the most fabulous Charli XCX track. 3. Write commentary for tracks if you can, it is much appreciated. 4. PM your finalized scores to @digitalkaiser 5. Troll votes are ignored/tossed, and I have the right to do this and explain my reasoning. Charli’s different eras can be a bit….divisive, so please use a critical ear for all her work.
